    What's with all the spam on here every day? You have to dig your way through all this garbage to get to legitimate threads. Is it all coming from the same location? I remember a while back when we had major issues with spam, somehow the mods blocked registrations from that specific location, I think it was somewhere in China. Is it possible to do that again?

    As long as it doesn't get protests started about oppressing Chinese spam or some shit. We don't need more people marching. Lol

    I'm hoping @K2 can get to it soon. It seems to be on the rise in the last couple weeks. Unfortunately it's beyond my skill level. All I can do is delete it and ban the users.

    I've been trying to report it as I see it. Hopefully it helps.

    For some reason, when SPAM comes up I have a button that allows me to delete it. So I am jump on that right away.

    Can't delete or edit my own posts, but I can do that.....

    Hopefully this is fixed @Gadget. Also I've made some updates to the spam algorithm @NHXRUNNER that should hopefully cut down on spam posts that get through.
